People who call me Nigel suck

At my old job I was being friendly to a new worker. Then someone said to me "You're not here to make friends. You're here to work". Mmm I thought okay you make friends here too. You even have their phone numbers? WTF.

Anyway I ignored what he said and continued with this behaviour. Then they started to call me "Nigel" "Nigel no friends".

It blows...

They might have a different work ethic than you; some people are able to work and to talk at the same time while others can't.

Or it could be that your work ethic is seen to suck since you take extra-long breaks or skip days. Perhaps these people don't and so they are allowed an extra five minutes to chat.

Also, sometimes it's purely a matter of timing. If I've got something major to get done, someone stepping into my office to complain about something/chat about life/etc would really, really irritate me because usually I'm already terrified about meeting the deadline. This is regardless of whether, on a different day, I could spend 30 minutes talking to this person about anything and everything.

Not saying that's definitively the case, but it's a possibility. I will admit that if I'm in the situation described above, my response is "I'm sorry, I really can't talk right now because I've got X due in Y hours", rather than saying "this isn't for making friends."

If people were calling me names, I wouldn't want to be friends with them. To be honest, I'm perfectly fine not having friends. I realize that I'm the exception rather than the rule and that it seems that most people need friends, but I still would not seek to be friends with such persons who were calling me names. Yes, they do suck. My advice would be to find your friends elsewhere.
